Peter Robbins, who provided the voice of Charlie Brown on several iconic animated specials, was arrested Sunday on charges of stalking.
According to TheWrap, the former child voice actor was detained at a border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico on Sunday at about 8 p.m. He was taken into custody after a border patrol officer discovered he was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff's department on a felony warrant, said Ralph DeSio, a public affairs officer with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection office. According to the San Diego County Jail website, he faces five felony counts, including stalking and making a threat to cause death or bodily injury.
Bail is set for $550,000, and Robbins, 56, is set to be arraigned on Wednesday.
No details have been released about what alleged crimes he committed.
Robbins' Peanuts work includes 1965's A Charlie Brown Christmas, 1966's It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and 1967's You're in Love, Charlie Brown.
